    Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Il Poggio 2014, Castello di Monsanto

    Legendarisk enkeltmarks Chianti lavet 90% Sangiovese og lidt Canaiolo og Colorino, lagret 20 mdr på mindre egefade. Mængden af nyt fad har været aftagende de senere år.

    Flot madvin til enkle kraftige kødretter. Prøv f.eks. til klassisk toscansk flæskesteg"Arista" med citron og rosmarin eller en t-bone fra grillen med citron eller balsamico.

    Il Poggio er en nærmest udødelig vin, der overrasker i sin evne til udvikle sig over tid; man smager en årgang og tænker "den skal lige bruge to år på at åbne sig". To år senere tænker man det samme. Il Poggio skal typisk være 10-12 år gammel, før den for alvor viser, hvad den kan. Den smager dog heldigvis også helt forrygende selv når den er for ung.

    94 p. Vinous (årgang 2014)

    The 2014 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna il Poggio is going to need a number of years to come into its own, and may very well be the sort of wine that only delivers true pleasure at full maturity, as the tannins are fierce and the acids are piercing. Even so, the 2014 possesses tremendous drive and intensity in its wild, savory Sangiovese flavors and overall structure. Translucent, expressive and beguiling, the 2014 Il Poggio is a winner from Monsanto.

    a 5,5 ha cru on stratified galestro at 310 m. Still shy, but slwly reveals gorgeous scents of mint, redcurrant bush, rosehip an orange peel. Adeceptive lightness of texture belies the underlying concentration. Classically austere, stern tannins and taut acidity, but perfumed nuances of lavender, cherry blossom, cherry pits ad tobacco promise years of enjoyment.

    96 p. Falstaff (årgang 2013)

    Glänzendes, sattes rubin-granat. Schöne gereifte Nase mit satten Noten nach Brombeeren und dunklen Kirschen. Dann viel Lakritze, etwas zimt, sehr einladend. Kraftvoll und dicht in Ansatz und Verlauf, zeigt viel dichtes, herzhaftes Tannin, sehr gut platziert, reife Beeren-frucht und dezente erdige Noten ergeben ein feines Spiel, sehr langer Nachhall.

    Monsanto's 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Vigneto Il Poggio is a super-classic, if somewhat austere wine, that is going to need at least a few years in bottle to come around. Today, the elements aren't fully put together, especially on the palate, where the wine is quite awkward. Even so, the wine's aromatic intensity and overall persistence make me hopeful for the future. - Antonio Galloni

    The beautiful 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Poggio is drinking very nicely at the moment. This cool vintage wine opens to a darkly saturated appearance with pretty tones of dark berry, cassis, tar, smoke and crushed river stone. Slightly evolved aromas of licorice and road paving add a whole new level of dimension and complexity. - Monica Larner

    94 p. Vinous (2012)

    The 2012 Chianti Classico Riserva Vigneto Il Poggio is dark, sensual and inviting. Silky tannins give the wine immediacy, and sweet red cherry, blood orange, herbs and sweet tobacco are all nicely delineated. Readers will have to give the 2012 at least a few years for the wine to shed some of its youthful intensity. Even so, this looks to be a relatively approachable vintage for Il Poggio that won't need a ton of time be accessible. If opened young, though, the 2012 needs quite a bit of air. - Antonio Galloni

    96 p. Vinous (2010)

    The 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva Vigneto Il Poggio is superb, but readers are going to have to be patient, as it is a wine for the cellar. It is quite evident the 2010 has already begun a move into a closed phase, as it is quite shut down in its aromatics. At the same time, the structural profile suggests it will enjoy a long drinking window starting around age 10-12, although that may be optimistic. Energetic, powerful and beautifully layered in the glass - with plenty of translucent energy - the 2010 Il Poggio is a wine to buy and forget about for another decade or so. - Antonio Galloni

    95 p. Decanter (2010)

    I still swoon recollecting this wine - perhaps it was the label that inspired Princess, bride-style adventures. But it is regal - made from well bred fruit, coming from the 5,5 ha single vineyard Il Poggio. Fragrant and graceful with deceptively delicate tannins

    93 p. The Wine Advocate (2010)

    The 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Poggio is a toned and elegant wine with an enormous sense of inner harmony and grace. The wine is splendent in this classic vintage with clear pulses of forest fruit, spice, toasted almond, balsam herb, cola and dark licorice. Those balsam notes are one of the wine's most elegant features because they are delivered at perfect pitch. Silky tannins and bright acidity keep the wine very much alive in the mouth. Castello di Monsanto offers us a very authentic Chianti Classico. Castello di Monsanto is a leading force in one of the least-explored sub zones of the Chianti Classic appellation. Its prestige and reputation is a guarantee for the larger Barberino Val d'Elsa area and my hope is that as these sub zones continue to grow in identity, Castello di Monsanto will enjoy even higher recognition. In my mind, the style presented here (that is more streamlined and elegant) is a blueprint for this exciting area of Chianti Classico. - Monica Larner
